2019 Car Raffle
Deadline April 30th
Only a few weeks left until the April 30th deadline to turn in all unsold and ticket stubs with payment. One $5.00 ticket offers a more generous venture than purchasing a vehicle on our own and each purchaser has a chance to win five cars plus $20,000 in cash drawings! This makes “selling” at work or to family and friends more like an opportunity—just show them the ticket—it will sell itself! Please click here to view the five 2019 vehicles. This is our Parish’s largest fundraiser and we thank you in advance for your support.
For additional tickets or information, please contact Chanel Marquis at 703-221-4044 ext. 222.
